Convention Gifts

It should now be Saturday morning, which means that it is the second day of Convention. Friday night was award night and I'll  share some photos of that another day.  Today I would like to share the details of the gifts that I made for my downlines (direct and otherwise).

I am now a proud Stampin' Up! great grandma and including me, there are all four generations of us at Convention. I made each of my team members who are attending convention a gift. They are all the same just different colours. Esther has a little something extra, which is why her box (the one at the back) is a little taller.

I used the Envelope Punch Board to make boxes to hold each of the gifts

Inside each box was a folder wrapped with Chevron Ribbon

The folder contained a notebook, pen and some sticky notes.
I made the folders using some of the backing card that comes with the 12" x 12" packs of Designer Series Paper (DSP). The outside of each folder was covered in paper from the Flower Pot DSP pack and the inside was covered with pieces of Night of Navy card stock.

The notepad was covered in the same DSP and there is Night of Navy card stock on the inside to finish it off too. The actual notebook is stuck to the inside of the folder. The whole thing was finished off with a pen that is tied in place with some Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon and some sticky notes that have been covered with the same DSP as the outside of the folder and the notebook cover.

Details of the Stampin' Up! products used to make these gifts are as follows:

Breaking news from last night. Esther and I both got to walk the stage as part of the Leadership Recognition. I'm waiting to get some decent photos from other people because I did not think it appropriate for us to take a "selfie". There are some photos posted on the Oakfield Crafts FaceBook page if you want a quick look. Some from Thursday's Silver 2 Reception too.
